Quenya/Tengwar Help Please.
- I have a basic question for anyone who can help me out.
I've been studying quenya for several weeks now, and making strong
I recently starting exploring the written alphabet of tengwar.
However, I noticed that there are multiple letters for the same
sounds in Quenya.
The Tengwar symbol 17 (N)umen seems indistinguishable to 19 (N)oldor
The Tengwar symbol 21 o(R)e seems indistinguishable to 25 (R)omen
The Tengwar symbol 29 (S) seems indistinguishable to 30 (S)
The Tengwar symbol 31 (SS) seems indistinguishable to 31 (SS)
I can't find any information on how to discern which to use when.
This is causing me some confusion. Does anyone have a good reference
or a good explanation?

(Tolkien writes it n with a tilde).. the name Noldo
was once Ngoldo (cf. S. Golodh)... however in words
like lambengolmo where ng is nor initial, you use
Anga.. Noldo is used only initially (like Nwalme)
